High-value executive coaching, consulting and training for elite leaders in all fields

Hello, I'm Sharon Hull. I'm a physician and a professional executive coach.

I help people THRIVE by coaching them to manage change, grow their careers, develop as leaders and integrate their personal and professional goals.

With nearly 30 years' experience in medicine and academic health care, and a long track record of coaching and consulting, I am ready to help YOU with leadership development, career management, resilience and work-life alignment.

Helping self-reflective individuals and organizations thrive and grow is a particular passion of mine.


Executive Coaching

I provide results-driven Executive Coaching for high-performing professionals seeking or working in leadership roles.  I have particular expertise in working with leaders in science and medicine, but also enjoy working with all types of professionals and creatives.


I provide management consulting to a wide range of organizations in many fields.  My particular expertise includes strategic planning, landscape analyses, change management, and future visioning.  I provide technical consulting, including grant collaboration, in primary care practice redesign for medical practices and health systems.


I provide training and development on a variety of topics related to leadership skills, career management, productivity, time management, resilience and work-life alignment.  My workshops are valuable to small groups and larger teams, and can be tailored to meet your specific needs.


Dr. Hull is a wonderful and supportive coach, and one I would recommend to young colleagues, like myself. Many coaches come with agendas, lectures, or outdated business skills. Dr. Hull brought an openness to our time together and worked with me to grow in the various areas that I needed at the moment, not just the ones that I thought I needed. She strikes a wonderful balance as facilitator, guide and coach. While most physicians wait until they hit burnout and stress to seek coaching, I would recommend Dr. Hull to any young physician starting a career, both to help prepare for the journey as well as insulate against burnout.

Sharon provided facilitation for one of our more complex meetings and she was tremendous. her approach was thoughtful and inclusive and she rapidly synthesized large amounts of information, allowing us to move forward in a productive and cohesive way. She is highly professional as well as intuitive and observant, which is a rare and valuable skill set.

I was fortunate to have utilized Sharon for both a difficult facilitated faculty retreat and later as a transitional coach. She brought a wealth of experience to both roles. By not ignoring the elephant in the room and asking probing yet considerate questions, she was able to help our faculty and then me make key decisions and transitions. Several of the faculty later asked if we could bring her back for follow up sessions. I highly recommend her as both a facilitator, coach and mentor.

Sharon has been a Godsend for ACPM on several key grant proposals. We were successful on two groundbreaking grants - one each from HRSA and CDC - which would not have been possible without her exceptional work as a lead grant writer. her training and experience in primary care, preventive medicine, and public health, with her ability to produce high quality proposal drafts under extremely tight deadlines, made her an indispensable part of the team. I would say retaining Sharon was a very wise investment for us, indeed, and would highly recommend her services.

Sharon was incredibly helpful when I was considering new career opportunities. She was a guide and a support, helping me make the best decision by looking at the pros and cons with fresh eyes.

Sharon is a consummate executive coach. She has exceptional credentials and experience to assist in client coaching. As importantly, Sharon's wisdom in coaching clients towards metta solutions is simply unparalleled. Rarely do you find a coach like Sharon, who is adept at facilitating professional growth and resiliency in a way that connects you to achieving your goals via collaboration, inclusivity and integration of values.
